Lagos State Government Temporarily Closes Roads for Ongoing Construction Projects

To expedite the progress of ongoing construction projects, the Lagos State Government has announced the temporary closure of specific roadways within the city.

The designated areas affected by these closures are the entrance to CMD Road and the Access Road to Isheri-Olowora on the Shagamu bound carriageway.

The disclosure was made by Abdulahfiz Toriola, the Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Transportation, in a statement issued on Tuesday.

Toriola elaborated that the CMD entrance will be inaccessible for a period of three days, starting from Wednesday, August 9. This closure is essential to facilitate the laying of the final wearing course, a pivotal step in the construction process.

Similarly, the Access Road to Isheri-Olowora on the Shagamu bound carriageway, located near the pedestrian bridge at Berger bus stop, will undergo a three-day closure, commencing from Thursday, August 10. This closure aims to prepare for the reconstruction of the remaining half of the outer lane of the carriageway.

Toriola further emphasized that preparatory work will commence on Wednesday, August 9, paving the way for the reconstruction efforts.

In response to these closures, Toriola outlined a traffic management plan to ensure smooth flow. Starting from Thursday, August 10, 2023, alternative routes have been designated for affected motorists.

For those on the Ojota Interchange, they can access CMD Road through the access road after the FMW weighbridge. Motorists on Dr. Nurudeen Olowopopo can connect to CMD Road via Otedola Estate.

Motorists headed for Isheri-Olowora, seeking to exit the expressway via the access before the Pedestrian Bridge at Berger bus stop, can utilize the next exit by New Garage to access Isheri-Olowora.

Toriola urged motorists to cooperate with deployed traffic management personnel who will guide them to their destinations during this temporary disruption period. This strategic approach demonstrates the commitment of the Lagos State Government to efficient construction management and maintaining the overall flow of urban transportation.
